Mark Cuban has never been one to see eye-to-eye with NBA commissioner David Stern.
But when it comes to the biggest rival the Dallas Mavericks, it's safe to assume Cuban follows the old saying of "the enemy of my enemy is my friend."
Before Saturday's game against the Detroit Piston, Cuban let it be known that he agrees with the 250,000 fine Stern leveled the...
